A Happy Little Place Stamp Bundle

Here are some wonderful cards created with the new collection.  There are some fun design options for those of you who enjoy creating slimline cards.  Since the Bakery & Toy Store were so popular from the most recent holiday collection, we have added 2 new store fronts.  A Happy Little Place features a Flower Shop & Book Store that can be used on a standard size card or you can add the A Room With A View stamp to create a 2 story building.  A Room With A View can also be used on it's own as a building.  Here are a few samples:

Anniversary Sale & New Stamps

2020 Anniversary Sale - border

 

I've got a quick post to let you know that the 17th annual anniversary sale is underway!  All rubber stamps are 25% off with a couple of exclusions.  The Together stamp set is excluded from the sale due to it's fundraising nature.  It's an adorable stamp set for a great cause, if you haven't already purchased it.  In addition, the two stamp bundles for Sandy Allnock's Colored Pencil classes are also exempt from the sale since the bundles are already discounted.  Other than that, all other rubber stamps are 25% off, even the ones in the sale section!  The sale ends at midnight est on Monday, August 24, 2020.

In addition to the anniversary sale, there are new stamps from a brand new illustrator.  The new collections Under the Sea & A Pirate's Life are illustrated by Shari Bresciani.  Shari's quirky illustrations make for some really fun stamps.  What's even better is that they are also included in the 25% off sale!  Look at how much fun the design team had playing around with these stamps.  The "Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum" sentiment along with the "tequila, vodka, gin, beer and wine" options create some fun adult themed cards.  Take a look at the cards shown from Anna, Elaine & Sara.  Sara even created a background that resembles a poured beer!  It's incredible.
